Golden pancakes - a legacy of antiquity
Every nation has its own special recipes for baking pancakes and ways to serve them on the table. French pancakes are of two types: biscuits and crepes. Biscuits are made from buckwheat flour, and the stuffing for them are eggs, ham, pies and mushrooms. In contrast to the galetes that serve as the main course, crepes are a dessert. They are usually thin, rolled up and containing sweet stuffing. Crepes made from wheat flour and served with chocolate spread. If you sprinkle ready-made crepes with sugar, sprinkle some brandy on them and then lightly set it on fire, you will get caramel-flavored flambé, an amazingly tasty dish.
Corn pancakes with meat or bean filling, poured with spicy cheese sauce, fried in chopped lard, are popular in Mexico. Bulgarians bake thin palachinki on huge pans, which are then stuffed with both salty (cheese, cheese) and sweet (frozen fruits, jams, chocolate, honey) fillings.
The history of the existence of pancakes has at least several centuries.Already in medieval England, this kind of competition was popular as “pancake racing” - a race of cooks with frying pans, whose participants threw their baked pancakes into the air and caught them, deftly exposing the frying pan. By the way, the modern British, too, are not averse to run around with pancake, demonstrating their agility.
The recipe for medieval English pancakes, described in a manuscript dated 1439, included eggs, flour, milk, and flavored ale — a local strong beer. But in Russia, pancakes were known long before the XV century. They say that the first pancake was baked from oatmeal dough and appeared by chance due to the cook's forgetfulness: warming up oatmeal jelly, the culinary specialist forgot about it, the moisture evaporated, and a roasted pancake appeared before the scattered kitchen.
Since that time, pancakes firmly entered the diet of the Slavs. Recalling the shape and color of the sun disk, they became a symbol of the pagan sun god Yarily, and with the adoption of Christianity, the preparatory meal before Lent.
